Hello Plussers… and Don’t Panic!!
The Black Bar has been replaced by a nice tidy little Apps icon in the upper right of your page, near your profile icon. The Apps icon looks like a tidy little grid of squares and you see it next to the bell in the pic below.
Now, instead of having a bazillion links staring at us all the time, we just have one cute little icon that looks like a grid of squares. All those links are right there when we want them, but we don’t have to have them taking up a whole ‘nother bar of space in the meantime. I love it!
